The Sixth Annual Forum of Developing Country Investment Negotiators was held in Port-of-Spain, Trinidad and Tobago from October 29–31, 2012, and was attended by 75 participants from 36 countries.
The Forum was co-hosted by the Government of Trinidad and Tobago, the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Secretariat, the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) and the South Centre.
In keeping with this year’s theme: “Understanding and Harnessing New Models for Investment and Sustainable Development,” the Forum provided a venue for participants to consider new approaches to ensuring that investment agreements support the developmental goals of developing countries, drawing on emerging models, including from the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), the Commonwealth Secretariat and the Southern African Development Community (SADC).
